I have DS15 and DS11 - both loved Malcolm in the Middle, Bobs Burgers, Parks & Recreation, Big Bang Theory - anyone got any recommendations on what we can watch together?

dont mind a little grown up - DS11 is quite mature for his age, but stuff like Jessica Jones is too grown up for him,

any recommendations?

The Middle
Brooklyn Nine Nine

I've been watching Scorpion with my 8yo, he likes it. Very occasional swearing but mostly big excitement minor peril stuff. Utter nonsense but fun.

Meet the Goldberg's - brilliant imo!

If you want to go a bit retro you could try Blackadder and Red Dwarf, they were both favourites of mine when I was younger.

It's a comedy series about a detective who pretends to be psychic, but is actually just very observant and clever despite being a slacker. My 11 year old loves it.

Every episode includes a 'hidden' pineapple, so you can have fun trying to spot that too!

My 11yr old loves Outnumbered (old series on Netflix)

Agree with Modern Family, The Middle and The Goldbergs.

Mine also like Friends, Everybody Hates Chris (not sure if this is on TV, we have DVD's) and Impractical Jokers.

Modern Family is worth a watch.

Father Ted was my first thought if you haven't done it already?
